I prefare the Muscle Museum EP version, it has more piano.

The newer versions of MM live are much better then Hullabaloo, like Glasto '04 and Earls Court.

^aw okay,.. I haven't heard them sadly, I only know of the two I've spoken. But I can imagine that over time they would be much improved

Agreed about the newer versions of MM being good. I saw them live at Earls Court, 19th for anyone else who went, and I'm gonna hafta say this, I'd have much preferred to have seen an Earls Court DVD rather than the two extras on the Glasto DVD.

Fave Muse song has to be the Stockholm Syndrome played live. Just stays fantastic for ten minutes. Awesome stuff.

And for the person that said that Crying Shame is gonna be a weak first single, I dunno, as its an interesting choice for an album that Matt has said is gonna be more about happiness rather than the apocalyptic theme.

Yeah Absolution wasn't as excting as the rest. All the piano pieces on Origin and Abs. are amazing.

And Hansard. Where do you get your 20 hours of Muse?
#45
I freaking LOVE Absolution.... it's right up there with OOS and slightly above Showbiz for me. Butterflies and Hurricanes, Hysteria, Time is Running Out, The Small Print, Stockholm Syndrome, Falling Away With You, Sing For Absolution, Endlessly.... damned awesome album.
I can't wait for the new album, especially since I haven't heard any songs off of it.
I do wish they would have put Fury or The Groove on Absolution, both are awesome songs.
#46
By the way, "Crying Shame" will not be the first single, the band posted a message on their message board.
#47
Their cover of House of the Rising Sun is amazing/ The singing is just so powerful. I think almost every cover of that song is good its a great song.

The Absolution tou DVD is good I bought that for my mum but I've sort of kidnapped it.

My favourite Muse songs are Stockholm Syndrome, House of the Rising Sun, Plug in Baby and Hysteria
#48
My new favourite band of the moment.....love them. Hard to pick, I love all 3 albums the same, though I've only given Showbiz one spin, just got it earlier today...Falling Away with You is right now my favourite song, the first minute absolutely blows me away.

FINALLY!!! Someone else who appreciates the genius of that song!

That riff is a classic that will be just as effective a hundred years from now. And the verses are so beautiful =D

Glasto meant a lot more to Muse, because it was Matt said it was "Our best gig EVER" and also, Dom's dad died during the concert, which pushed Muse almost to breaking up.

I listen to Showbiz the most.


Random 1-8 is a Japanese Muse CD from 2000. I was in France during the summer, and I saw a import. It cost ?35, but I just had to have it.

It has a load of B-Sides on it, like Radiohead's Comlag. On it is
Coma
Pink Ego Box
Forced In(extended)
Agitated
Yes Please(same as Hullabaloo)
Fillip (Live)
Do We Need This (Live)

^ Apocalypse Please, Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, The Small Print, Thoughts of a Dying Athiest. They're my favourites off absolution.


And this is definately not stolen from Nicky...

We are now currently mixing the new album and hopefully should be finished over the next few weeks. We'll announce the release and touring plans soon. About the album, some new songs deal with awol soldiers, Zeta Reticulans, the sound of Joe Meek's tape machine being thrown down the stairs, the private thoughts of General Zhu Chenghu, feeling strangely comfortable collecting fire wood whilst wielding an axe and of course, how to store Pasta for 12 years using nitrogen flushing. We have also obtained a Buchla. Our very own Marvin sat in the corner depressed too complex to be fun and too unreliable to be a friend. It may have been close to getting blood from a stone but in the end we did get some earnest synth dreams out of him. The 6/8 cycling monster has turned out truly gargantuan, it will have to end the album (a few beserkers may recognize the chordal structure from piano doodlings on previous tours). Also, a sinister presence at the center of our Galaxy has inspired what could be described as a surprisingly casual manage-a-trois involving Prince, R2-D2 and the Queen when she was hot. Oh, by the way "Crying Shame" isn't going to be the first single! So that's it for now, see you all soon we hope.

Take care, Muse
#59
Anyone heard the leaks from the new album, "Crying Shame" and "DES", **** quality, but its looking good.
Btw, MUSE, incredible band. Seriously. In my circle of friends, I'm surrounded by Muse worshippers and it rubbed off on me, big style. So yeh. Muse. Muse. Muse.

wasn't the whole 'happiness" theme originally intended for Absolution anyway? From what I remember that's what they were going for, but then the world went crazy so apocalyptic undertones seemed more fitting...

an extended version of Forced In?... Nice... THat song is sooooooooo eerie Aside from that I have all the studio b-sides though

For Showbiz, I'd have to say my favourite song is Hate This And I'll Love YOu. It's a highlight of the whole album for me.

Album cover looks cool. Actually, I've heard two of the new songs (one being "A Crying Shame") and I love both of them. The quality isn't great, but the songs are awesome. The songs sound more like they would fit better on Absolution than on any of the other albums. I wouldn't say they sound "happy" though.

^ It's great, as is their cover of Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Andy Williams. Apparently Chris just wanted to do the "da da, da da, da da DA da"s And heres some trivia, when Matts voice broke (or something) he went to the doctors and they examined his vocal chords and said it looked like a girls, so thats why he can sing like that. And thanks for the live clips Glen_hansard or Nicky, whoever.


lol, he would've gotten so much **** for that. Like if he sounded like a girl. I wouldv'e given him **** anyway.
#72
lol, yeah maybe they're having second thoughts about the "happy" thing. but they have covers like "can't take my eyes off you" and "feeling good" that sound upbeat and don't involve the world ending. I liked that sort of thing. The jazzy stuff. I wouldn't want a whole album of it but.

I recently bought hullabaloo and I really love the work on there. It's like nothing else. I mean listening to "Forced in" I just can't pay attention to anything else. It's just so awesome.

The band's energy is just awe-inspiring

Hullaballoo is good but there are better gig bootlegs around. And, IMO, the mixing on Hullabaloo makes it sound ****e. Not enough bass on the CD.

Truth be told, I actually have the DVD audio on CD (no idea how, though) rather than the actual audio CD. I dunno - are the audio CD and video DVD any different or do they sound the same?

Kinda confusing =D
#76
^I'm confused... did you rip the sound of the DVD to CD? because then it's much the same. Glen is right, there's not enough bass, although it's better still than some live dvd's I've seen. Maybe in 5.1 it would've been different. There are better bootlegs too, but to start you off and by relative comparison, it's quite amazing. It's probably what got us started

The official live cd however isn't very different either - maybe a touch better, because they would've had a chance to do extra mastering and EQ. The second cd that comes with the soundtrack is just B-sides that are studio-recorded, so it's all your normal studio-quality stuff

Hi guys I try to play some of the stuff from muse epscially from his Abs album. I only his a cheap pacfica guitar and I'm going to get a new amp (VOX 50ad) do you have any adivce on tone and effects. (I know he use a lot of effects but not quite sure which. )
The Cats are out in town.
Kat Gear
Crybaby Wah
Whammy pedal
Ibanez SZ520
Zakk Wylde MXR Overdrive
Vox AD30VT
MXR Distortion III
Taylor acoustic.

umm... he uses a fair few, so youj'd break your bank by the time you got them all. I suggest get a multi fx to start you off. But he uses delay, chorus, Digitech Whammy, a MIDI harmoniser, plus a few different distortion stompboxes.. by the way Glen_Hansard probably knows a billion things more about it, but this will get you started.... when I play their stuff, I just used to run it through my setup - a wah/volume pedal, a tube screamer and a smashbox. That gave me all the basic sounds, and the rest was just a matter of using some creative playing and mucking around with what I had. And I got some really close sounds too at that...

To be honest, I don't know how to get a good Muse tone. I know a good bit from http://musegear.fobbedoff.net/ , but I gave up trying to get it after I realised he used so much. You'll need a Fuzz pedal anyway (he uses Zvex Fuzz Factorys, I use a US made Big Muff Pi and it sounds ok), on Absolution he either uses his Fuzz Factorys or his amp's built in distortion. P90s will also help.
Just read that site and listen to some live tracks, it will give you an idea of what you need.
